Well, that starts being a KO criterium. I'd like to see a laptop like

- one or two serial interfaces
- modem
- IrDA
- TFT display, with a nice graphics chipset (I'd like to have
ATI, but with a good, free driver, and it's own RAM, no UMA
- Large HDD
- Good akku, best with possibility to plug an external extra
akku onto it
- PC like keyboard layout (with the 6 keys above the cursur keys
kept togeather, not as a row on the keyboard's right side or
so...). I don't need those Windows(R) extra keys, neither do I
need extra "email", "web" ot the like keys...
- CPU (i386, ppc, ...) doesn't really matter, but of course I'd
like to see Linux support:-)
- network interface (100MBit/sec is okay, GBE is nice, too:-)
- Floppy
- CDROM, maybe DVD or CD-RW or sth like that, but that's IMHO
not that important.
- parport
- VGA out (I personally don't need TV in/out)
- USB? Well, I don't need it:-) I don't like it...
- Firewire. Yeah:-)
